Davis, R-Newark, collaborated with health care providers, parents and state agencies in drafting the bill.

House Bill 4178 will fund this program with money previously allocated to funding at-home caregiving through a contracted nurse or nurse’s aide. Instead, the money will go directly to the related adult who already is providing care.
